The popular presenter, who, like many television presenters, made her show virtual when ordering at home, said the comment when she broadcast to viewers from home on Monday.
“One thing I learned from quarantine is that people – it’s like being in prison the way it is,” she said. “It’s mainly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone is gay here.”
The video, which was listed as “unavailable” on YouTube as of Wednesday afternoon, was rated “deaf” by some viewers who responded to the episode in the platform’s comment section.
“I feel bad for the children at home, all students, all parents,”
“She was sitting in her $ 15 million mansion complaining and comparing her to a prison, very deaf,” commented a viewer on YouTube.
CNN asked a representative of DeGeneres to comment.
DeGeneres moderated the “at-home edition” of the show with her wife Portia de Rossi as cameraman and director and her dog Augie as a key handle, she joked.
DeGeneres is not the only celebrity whose attempts to contact during the Coronavirus outbreak have failed.
